Trudging Along

Seems I am devoted almost exclusively to Corsica River.. While it is not a bad thing and has not gotten on my nerves yet it is leaving little time for anything else.

I can really see me getting this row completed by my self-imposed deadline of September 21.   I will still be behind the curve but progress will have been made and a goal met.

I am picking up  "My Stitchers Heart" once a week and am making slow progress here.   I hope to carve out a Saturday in the next 6 weeks where I can paint and finish the box.   I really really want to take it to Cape May in November for my class with the designer and have her sign the bottom!

And some mornings, when I don't feel like I have enough time or maybe don't want to wrestle with Corsica River and the 36-inch scroll frame, I am putting in a foot or so of stitches on my quilt binding.   I have hand stitched one side so far.  One down and three to go!

I did just finish reading Beneath the Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan.  I highly recommend this true story set in Italy during World War II.   Without giving anything away, I had to keep reminding myself it was a true story and that the central character was only 17.   Amazing account and a fast read.

So you see, not much progress to show on any one thing but bits and pieces on several fronts.   Typical of me, jack of all, master of none!

Thanks for the fun comments from everyone on the Gnome/Fairie Garden.

Wishing all my friends in Florida to be safe in the wake of Hurricane Irma.  Sending prayers.

Good for you -- bits and pieces will help you get closer to set goals and/or finishes.

Your stitching looks so fabulous. Thank you for the book recommendation. I have it on order from my library.

I think it is a crafting thing; we all do it. Just enjoy and you will get there, a stitch at a time xx

Robin: Corsica River is so beautiful, I like to get a little stitching in each day if I am not going to commit to a lots of stitching at once.
What a great idea to have the designer sign your piece, wonderful.
That quilt backing is adorable.
